Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I cannot seem to mount or access this device in anyway, whether connected via the dock or directly (USB Device).
It's the CX4230. The Camera access app doesn't list it, though the website for this app says it should, and I can't mount it to a /mnt/camera dir by using mount /dev/sda1 or 2 or b1 etc... just tells me that it is not a 'block device' (I think thats what it said - am at work at the mo - soz).
Any help/redirection/links... gratefully received.
Please keep in mind, I am far from a Linux expert, but since I have gotten help from this site, I am open to trying to help others.
I am not farmiliar with the model of camera you have, but my camera was not on the list of camera supported (the list came close, but I could not get it (usb connection).
What I did was really simple. I bought a Sandisk card reader that was by nature compatible with linux. so when I want to get the pics from the camera, I just remove the compact memory card, put it in the card reader and the access "sda1".
I know it didn't solve the problem in the strictest sence, but it works and all is well.
the card reader sells for about $30. The trouble was finding it in stock somewhere. I happen to get lucky - I was doing work for someone and they had the exact model I was looking for, unopened in storage. I told them I would deduct $25 from my fee and take it in trade - luckily they said OK.
I can tell you if you have a 'compact flash' memory card, the SanDisk SDDR-31 works well - no configuration needed (at least on my system - suse 8.2). It detected it and added in icon on the desktop. SUPER EASY.
I am using kodak Dx4330 with the dock and GTCAm when you detect the camera with GTCam you have to press the transfer button on the dock while detection is in progress.I only had to do this once now i can access camera anytime without pressing the button
Both types there (bz2 and .tar.gz) are compressed source packs, which would require the usual ./configure, make, make install routine to compile and install them.
As RedHat is an RPM/package based distro, it's strongly advised you dont mix packages and source installs, so use sites like rpmfind.net to find the latest packaged versions.
Always check the rpm vendor is reliable, usually the distro maker will package new releases and put them online. Usually they offer their own updater program to fetch them too. I think RedHat's is Up2date.
